Apple Crumble Muffins Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Recipe

APPLE CRUMBLE MUFFINS (Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free)

(Makes 10-12 muffins)


  • 100g oat flour (make your own by grinding oats in a food processor)
  • 100g coconut flour
  • 100g sugar/sweetener
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda 
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt


  • 3/4 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 apple, finely chopped



  1. In a large bowl, mix together all dry ingredients.
  2. In a separate bowl, crack and whisk the egg.
  3. Then add in the milk and vinegar.
  4. Stir and set aside.
  5. In a third bowl, make the crumble topping by adding all topping ingredients to a bowl and using your hands to mix together.
  6. The mixture will be dry at first but keep using your hands until a crumble consistency is formed.
  7. Peel and finely chop the apple.
  8. Pre-heat the oven to 175 C and grease a muffin tin with coconut oil (or use cupcake cases or a silicone mould).
  9. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix very well (I recommend using your hands again!)
  10. Divide the mixture between 10-12 muffin moulds (only filling about 3/4 of the way).
  11. Press about 2 tsp chopped apples into the top of each one, and finish by sprinkling the crumble on top and pressing down slightly.
  12. Bake for 21-23 minutes, then allow to cool fully before serving.
